Join the Film Junk 2015 Oscar Pool and Live Chat This Sunday!


Oscar night is almost here and if you are looking for an extra excuse to watch the telecast and join in the festivities, Film Junk has got you covered. In past years we have recorded a pre-Oscar podcast prior to the start of the awards and broadcast it on Ustream, inviting Film Junk listeners to tune in and participate live. Of course, technical difficulties were common and the ties between the topics being discussed and the Oscars were usually tenuous at best, so this time around we are just cutting out the podcast part and setting up a live chat in the Film Junk Ustream channel instead. So now we can all just relax and watch the Oscars together with a bit of added levity.

To make things a little more interesting, we are also doing our annual Film Junk Oscar pool as well. Our good friend Falsk has set up the pool over at Fun Office Pools so head over there and sign up now. It’s free to take part and the winner will receive a $50 Amazon gift card plus bragging rights for the next year. Sound good? The Film Junk Oscar chat will start at approximately 8 pm EST this Sunday. Hope to see you all there!

    Was it Greg that’s been the FJ alum to be beat in the last few years?

  • Jesse Bajenaru

    Are you guys saving a recording of this? I will be working during that time and am going to watch it later in the night. I would love to still be able to listen to your discussion.

  • Sean

    There will be no actual audio or video component, just a text chat.

  • Sean

    Yep Greg is the man to beat! I’ll try and bug him to officially sign up for the pool.

  • Jesse Bajenaru

    Thanks Sean. I guess I misunderstood what you guys were doing.

  • Sean

    No prob. I misunderstand what we are doing all the time.

  • pcch7

    Done. Pure guesswork on some of the shorts and that stuff but I feel pretty good.

  • Lori Cerny

    I have to work, too, so no fun for me.

  • Azazel

    This will be my first year live with the filmjunk crew and listeners. I’m excited :D

    Which is a shame because I actually had the chance to catch all of them at a theater screening last week. Too busy with work unfortunately.
